It is masked by the convention of using initials, but I think Naomi Hurnard is the only non-man who made it into this list in the substantive crime chapter of the latest edition of Baker’s Introduction to English Legal History.

Incredibly heartened that there is work afoot by some young women scholars to do something about LH’s woman problem. Not mine to tell, but it is going to be good.
